Shorter is better.
If you're a roadie-turned-endure-rider who's in love with half-finger gloves, or an XC rider who likes his fingers free, Fox Racing's Ranger Short Gloves are there for you. Like all Fox gear, they ooze dirt pedigree with padded Airprene knuckles, a double-layer Clarino palm, and silicone gripper finger tips. They've also got a soft microsuede thumb patch that's at home on the trails or the road and a breathable air mesh body that keeps your hands cool when you're riding on the hottest summer days, no matter where you are.

break the bank on something else
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: XL
With mountain biking (or cycling in general) there are a million plus ways to spend your money. I'd rather not spend a bunch on gloves, but I still want something that performs well. These gloves are comfy, high quality, breathe well, and have great grip. 10/10 would recommend.
good value, wears well
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Just a heads up this is not a glove with a ton of padding, if you like that then great. Holds up very well and fits right on size.
